A pair of new town supervisors took the oath of office Wednesday afternoon.

Democrat Adam Bello takes the post in Irondequoit and in Greece former assemblyman Bill Reilich will now lead the town.

Both are looking for a new approach to town government.

Development seems to be a theme for both new town supervisors. Adam Bello in Irondequoit wants to wrap up a number of projects, including one that's been a point of contention in recent years, the Medley Center. Bill Reilich is focused on bringing more development to the town of Greece.  

Following the swearing in of both Adam Bello and Bill Reilich, both men got right to the point on projects they would like tackle right away.

In Irondequoit, the new town supervisor spoke to constituents about making changes in the way the town attracts and secures development.

“Clearly, development is one of the biggest issues we have in Irondequoit, whether we're talking about building a new library, or how we encourage projects like I-Square or deal with the Medley Center and the issues surrounding that. It's important that we have the right team and the right organization at town hall and a professional organization to deal with those issues,” said Bello.

On the west side in Greece, new Town Supervisor Bill Reilich wants to complete current projects at town hall to include a new police headquarters and bring even more business to the area.

“It's a great town and we are certainly going to welcome business development, because with business development we create jobs for our residents, which makes a strong and vibrant community,” said Reilich.
